Audit log cleaning

Enonic version: 7.5.0
OS: Ubuntu 18

Hello, everyone. I have a doubt about the audit log. I have a server with a high update rate, which leads to a high amount of audit logs. I know I can deactivate the logging on the file XP_HOME/config/com.enonic.xp.audit.cfg, but we have some way to clean old logs or limit the logging storage for X days only, since I wish to keep the logs, but not store them for more than a week?

Hi, Paulo.

At the moment, I think you can only delete the whole repo, not manage parts of it. But the good news is that according to the Roadmap update January 2021, “Lib-node import/export” is on the list of short-term features to be implemented. So when that is in place, you should hopefully be able to delete the repo and then re-import just the most recent non-expired data.

There is an even more relevant feature coming, automatic cleaning of audit logs will be implemented before this summer!

Thank you! For now the Data Toolbox is being very helpful in this task as I can delete 500 logs per page. Anyway, I’m very excited for the new features! :smiley:
